    Highlight: 5 1/4" Provenance: Robert Hay, Linplum. 1799-1863, collected in Egypt 1824-1839. C. Granville Way, Boston, acquired by his father from the Hay Collection. Robert Hay first visited Egypt as an officer in the Royal Navy in 1824 and was so taken with the country that he returned repeatedly between 1828 and 1839. He made a number of trips down the Nile, collecting antiquities and recording monuments with a number of accomplished artists including Frederick Cutherword and Jossph Bonomi. They made plans, sketches, and watercolor drawings of many of the tombs and temples in Egypt and Nubia, which are now preserved in the British Museum. After Hay's death his collection was sold in the great Crystal Palace 8500 701 EGYPTIAN BRONZE FIGURE OF OSIRIS WITH BASTET-CAT AND FALCON, Late Period, ca. 664-3

    Highlight: If this is the case here then ’R.Y.’ might conceivably suggest the collector William Robert Hay (1761-1839). Although Hay’s formal practice was to use both his forenames or. more usually, his initials, his preferred Christian name - inherited from his uncle and godfather Robert Hay Drummond, archbishop of York (1761-76) - seems to have been Robert; and, to his radical detractors, in the days of his notoriety after ‘Peterloo’. he became known us the ‘Reverend Robert Rednose’. 2 * If Hay is our man then the other clues could fall into place. In 1796 flay, the third son of the Honourable Edward Hay and grandson of the seventh earl of Kinnoul. was a barrister practising on the Northern Circuit and holding the office of steward of the Manorial Court of Manchester.

    Highlight: William Robert Hay, M. A. (joint issuer with two other gentlemen of the Buxton Tokens, of which a statement will appear in due course. ) He was Vicar of Rochdale in 1820, he died December 10th, 1839, aged 78. The books engravings he evidently subscribed for, and had them, and Birchall’s “List of Tokens,” bound in whole calf, of uniform size, viz., 9i inches deep by 7} inches wide. They are all interleaved and, as the water- mark on the paper is 179G, we may infer that the binding was done at a time contemporary with the completion of the issue of the plates of engravings. Mr. Hay has inserted in each volume the cost of the parts and of bind- ing the same. Samuel Birchall’s List of Provincial Copper Coins or Tokens, was •evidently a gift from the author, as no price is inserted, simply

    Highlight: In 1853 was published a book which ranks with the most fascinating of all modem biographies — the Life of Benja- min Robert Hay don, Historical Painter , from his Autobiography and Journals , edited and compiled by Tom Taylor. It is one of the mysteries of what is called literary success that this work should not have obtained a circulation almost equal to Uncle Tom's Cabin . Speaking only as one reader, I can say that at the time they were published I happened to take up each work early in the evening of one day, and it was very late in the morning of the next that I went to bed. In both cases sleep was impossible until the biog- raphy and the novel came to an end.
